Diane Gage


Might you be a match for me?

I found out in 2000 that I have Polycystic Kidney Disease. Kidneys are basically the body’s filters and mine are currently functioning at about 15%, on their way to failing altogether. We’re born with two kidneys but can function fine with just one healthy one. So I’m hoping maybe you’ll let me have one of yours, please?

My family and friends have all been tested but none of them qualified. Might you be a match for me?

I am a Mom, artist, writer, teacher, singer, gardener, arts therapist - or was, anyway. Now I can barely do any of those things (except be a Mom) because the PKD is taking its toll and fatigue is my daily reality. Believe me: I’d rather be dancing! Altho I do what I can.

Thank you for reading this and considering donating a kidney. If you’re interested, please contact Scripps Transplant Services at 858-554-4310.
